Upon the restart, Hoffenheim took up where they had left off. Bebou firing another effort down the throat of Marvin Schwäbe. Both teams made a handful if changes which included the introduction of the surprisingly benched Kramarić alongside Stach. Köln also replaced Kainz with the fleet-footed Maina.
Just as it appeared as if the afternoon affair would end scoreless, Köln youngster Max Finkgräfe found the net to give Die Geißböcke the lead. The full-back whipped a spectacular 25-metre freekick over the wall and beyond Oliver Baumann's fingertips in the 79th minute. On the cusp of victory and three vital points, the hosts responded to equalise at 1-1. As is often the case, Andrej Kramarić remained composed to steer the ball home with the aid of the right post.
